JUMP Recap 2017

JUMP Dance Convention and Competition is hands down one of the most inspiring, organized, and positive experiences CVDA PC has every year.  The instructors are stellar, the competition is fair, and the classes expose our dancers to new styles and choreography.

This weekend was extra special, as instructors Karley, Courtney, and Amanda all participated in teacher classes and observed our dancers all weekend! We also had Casey and Lindsey visit for their first convention experience, and Rae came to watch competition Saturday night and meet the Mac parents!

A standout event for the CVDA Instructors was the intimate teacher talk with Mia Michaels on Saturday morning.  She talked about her creative process, staying inspired, and what challenges she sees facing dancers today.  When asked, she listed the top 5 qualities she believes are most important and that she looks for in a dancer:

  • Work Ethic
  • Technique
  • Athleticism
  • Confidence (not to be mistaken as ego)
  • Vulnerability/Artistry

The dancers had a great time too! Some even earned scholarships.
